If a fuitk aulilime and deep Points the rond tint leads to heavon, And the leet that highway keep. If we drink from Truth'a Great Fountain, Round the brow a h-ilo lioa, Of a steady, lustrous shining, Visible to angel eyes And this halo throws a brightness O'er the fnce ihat mortals see.

Our Military Correspondence. FROM THE FORTY-SECOND REGIMENT. CAMP MOSS HOUSE, KY., June 4th, 1862. Dear DEMOCRAt : I fnin would write to you of our inactivity, while, in nearly nil the oilier departmenta, our glorious troops are aclieiving shining victories. But I assure those who have friends in this division, Hint, slihouuh we are and lutve been for some lime Apparently in nctive, we are holding in check an enemy which ought well attract the attention of a force much superior lo our own. It is well known to our officials that wiihin sup porting dislnnee of Cumberlnml Gnp, there ate forces sufficient lo swell the en- emy'g cumber at the Gap lo twenty thou sand ; then I think it is well for ua to be cautious. Wo Are wi'.hia eight miles of toe enemy s works. A few days ago, I visited a place called Log Mountain, about six miles this side of the enemy's fortifications. After climb ing an hour, I reached the lop. Several officers were viewing the enemy with glasses. 1 conld see, without the aid of a glass, in the dim distance, the outline of their camp, and their line of enithworks could be traced distinctly. Presently, through the kindness of a Lieutenant, I got a peep through a glass. Never before did I see such a city of tents. Defore I bad seen this second Gibraltar, I was quite anxious that we should make an ad vance, but I must say my ideas of an advance suddenly vanished. Several limes I have heard and seen this expedi tion spoken of, as of the least account, when compared with others of like character ; but the present indications are that this will soon be one of the most im portant of the enemy's positions, as it is one of the strongest. The heavy timber has been felled for miles around the Gap. The Gap itself appears.when viewed from Log Mountain, like a notch in the vast range of moun tains. Thero,- on either side, the slope is quite gradual, excepting heie and there a rugged peak shoots up. Their line of fortifications on the left of Ihe Gap, ex tends, I should judge, for upwards of half a mile. Beside numerous rille pits and extensive redoubts, at the extreme ieft, the highest point is being strongly fortified, and mounts a 64 pounder gun. On the right there is a high, rocky point, which is extensively fortified, and, unless siege is given them, this point will be almost impregnable. The enemy have a strong force al Big Creek Gap. Gen. Spears, with his brigade, holds them in check. We have quite extensive forti fications, which have been built under tbe direction of Col. DeCourcey. He is one of Ihe ablest officers in this division. Our pickets are often alarmed, and frequently some one who is not disposed to be on the lookout, get bagged. Three men have been sent from tlii Regiment to recruit in the several Coun ties in Ohio, I hope Old Oeatiira will not be backward in sending a few good men to i.;. i.... ;,.,.

It was undor the preaching of Elder Kann, a minister nf tho Christian order, in Jack sonvilln. and sometime in hor eighteenth yrar,('51.)that Miss Beals entirely gave hor heart lo God. I have not prote'ndud she was rich, or groat, in this world'a ostuom ; though aha does appear to have boen most tenderly loved by all who knew her moro. iiiaceu. man is common, but what I menn to say is, that, in becoming a child nf God, an huir of Heaven, a disciplo of Jesus, a prospecitvo companion of aneols and the saints in light, sho accepted the highest honor, and entered upon the most exalted career ever opened to human kind. Soon nftor hor adoption into tho family of Ond, nor nomo and membership wero removed to Doardstown, or its vicinity, where unitine with tho samo order, sho continued to ex hibit to all tho powor of that vital "Faith that works in all iho lifo by lovo. tiers was not a sectional or merely do- nnminatinnal religion.

Possessing thai lending, though truly feminmo, type of mind so justly prized in all society, she was an invaluublo helper in the Sabbath School, the picnlo parly, the benevolent sccietv: in fine, wherever a Christian heart, an in genuous mind, and ready.t killfol hand wore essential.

Hlowly Alma pinod, though patient and resigned to Ihe last, and drew away, first from tho active circle; then the social, then the worshiping; all save tho little circle of home; a home whero, for years, she had presided with all tbe diginty and tasle of woman. In an Interviow wilh ono of hor brothers on the near approach of death, she said : "Brothor, I must soon die. I cannot re main much longer with you. But I fool that iho Lord is uiy Shophord. I have no fear." ' O," said sho on one occasion, "I havo a broader homo a broader botho than this." Speaking of an aunt whose exemplary piety had won hor lo tho way of life, she said earnestly, "Aunt Thalia shall be my light into Heaven, (sho being already there.) It was on that remembered morning, (April 4th.) that, coming into a room adjoining tho sittnig ronin, ana called liar latnur to come in and sit by hnr sido awhile.

In al! circumstances, as a man is, under God, the master of bis own fortune, so is he the maker of bis own mind. The Creator has so constituted the human in tellect thut it can grow only by its own action ; it must ceilainly and necessarily grow. Every.rp therefore, in an important seuvo, stcale himself. His books and teach 8 are but helps; the work is his. A man is not educated until he has the ability lo summon, in ease of emergency, all bis mental power in vig orous exercise lo eflect his proposed ob ject. It is not tbe man who has seen the most, or wbo has read most, who can do this such a one is in danger of lieing borne down like a beast of burden, by an over-loaded mass of other men's thoughts. rvor is it a man that ean boasl merely of native vigor and capacity.

In this same byberhol cal strain they speak of a pretty bonnet as "delicious," and oesuribo an ngrocablo gentleman as "fasci nating." But it is not tho adjectives alone Ihat suffer; Ihe verbs are tortured quito at mercilessly as their adjuncts.

Tho samo person assures vou that she "loves" her mother, bur lap dog, and raw oysters I What wero could she say of her Redeemer ? We onco hoard this Indiscriminate use of superlativos quietly rebuked lo a passage of conversation, which was nearly as follows: 'Don't you think Miss So aud-so is perfectly beautiful ?" said a young lady to Judge B., apropoe of a good looking school g'rl whose name had boen mentioned. "She is pretly," said the Judge. His fair interlocutor looked puzieled and disappointed. "I appreciate your admiration of jonr friend,' said the Judgo, "but purfoct boautj, my doar girl, is sniDuwnat rarer than you soom to imagine i tin not anow mat l nave ever iron an exaaipto of it in man or woman. Pretty girls are plonly enntigJi ; good looking women are not uncommon ; decidedly handsomo ones are occasionally met with. I have seen (in forty years) half a doxun who wero beautiful ; but a 'perfectly beau tiful' woman is wbat 1 have noi soon hitherto." Tho young lady looked litlla astonished at first; but, having retlectod a mnmonl.it occurred to her that Ihe Judgo might be in tho right, and ihat the did not moan any thing like tho panegyric which she had pro nouncedand she said so. "Why, Judgo, ynu are so awful critical , I only moant lo say she was pretly." "I thought so," said tho Judgo. "but how could I know that your idea waa not as exiiavagant at your opitnots ? You must excuse ine for the mistake, sinco it was not wholly my fault. Aud so endod tho discourse. The Eagle's Stategy. As the mountains around the Konigs ota aoounu in chamois, the .eagle very naturally resorts there ; and opportunity is frequently afforded of witnessing his tactics, modified by circumstances. The following account gives an instance of most cunning stratagem ; but it also shows bow impotent for attack the eagle is when his vic'.im is not entirely exposed. A good sized chamois buck bad got upon a ledge of rock, and was gazing downward nnd about him as these animals like to do. An eagle perceived him : but, as the bird could not approach close lo the rock on account of his breadth of wing, he re solved to obtain the prize he had marked as his own in another manner. So he sailed by the chamois on his narrow path as near as be dared to come ; then again and again ; and as the animal retreated iu order lo quit his perilous position, the eagle wheeling round in a smaller circle, met him instantly, to hem in aod cut off his retreat. Hy thus rushing past within a few few feet or him, and tilling lum with terror, he hoped lo bewilder the cha mois, and cause him to fall over the preci pice, in which case he would have but to descend and carry off hia booty. And in fact, the chamois, from trepidation nrob .... . ... bly, in turning a corner, slipped with one hind foot over Ihe ledge. He lost his balance, and foil headlong over the rock, as the eagle intended ihat he should. Hut, after lodging for a short time on an intervening slope, the carcass rolled off, and came toppling down into the luke. The whole proceedings had been watched by two persons in a boat. They now rowed across to get the chamois ; while the eagle, disappointed of his victim, wheeled above them, watching all they did. Foreit Creature ; by Chartet Boner. Tn Lower Class. -Wbo are they f The toiling millions, the laboring men and women, the farmer, Ihe mechanic), the artist, the inventor, the producer? Far from it. These are Nature's nobility God's favorites the salt of the enrth. No matter whether they are high or low in station, rich or poor in pelf, conspicu ous or humble in position, tbey are Ihe "upper circle" in Ihe order of nature, whatever the factious distinction of fash ionable society. It is not low, it is the highest duty, privilege, pleasure, for the great men and the whole-souled woman lo earn what they possess, to work their way through life, to be the 'architects ol their own fortune. Some may remark the class we have alluded lo as only relatively low, and in fact the middle class. We in sist they are absolutely the very highest. Is there a class of beings on earth who may properly be denominated low 1 If so, it is composed of those who consume without producing, wbo dissipate the earnings of their fathers aod relatives, without laboring for anything themselves. Notuiko ean be had in this world with out paying its full price. Tbe foolish mother lears to let bet son pursue Ihe natural spores befitting bis age, iest be should be run over or drowned. She will not pay tbe price of bravery and manli ness, and therefore her child grows up a cowardly booby. merton. A King in Captivity. savsli.

A communication from Valparaiso. til it 'i ...v.. 1 Pro bblT 10 ,b interference of the French government, has ijst taken place in South America, in the Araucanian provinces, tributsriesof Chili. A French, man, originally from Perigeux, named Tonnens, had established himself among the tribe of the Gunchis, Hilicks, and Viliks, who people Araucania, lo the south of tho Rio Biohio, between the Andes and the sea, The superiority of M. Tonnens enabled him lo acquire great influence over these semi barbarous popu lations, lo whom be had rendered great services ; and about two years ago many of Ihe tribes proclaimed him king. He took the name of Orelie An'.oine, and imposed upon himself the mission of or ganizing nnd civilizing the country. His projects and growing power gave umbrage to Ihe Chilian government, which had in view lo seize on Araucania. But King Aurelius, being an energetic man, determined lo resist. He traversed Ihe country lo consult with the chiefs about repulsing vigorously any attacks of the Chilians, and came lo an understand ing wilh the Chief Guenlecol, who could of himself furnish 40,000 Indians. Con tinuing bit expedition, he arrived on January 4th in the plain of Los Persies, aod was resting himself with his followers under tree, when a detachment of Chil ian cavIry sent by the Governor of Nacimento, threw themselves upon him, forced upon horseback,' and conducted him to Nacimento, where he was thrown into prison. One of his followers, gained over by the Chilians, had apprised them of his movements. One would un derstand this act of violence if the tribes governed by King Aurelius had belonged to Chili. But the Araucanians nlwars re fused all temptation to submit, and con cluded in 1773, wilh Chili, a treaty of peace, which secured them the riif lit of i i - - . . Having a resiuent minister at Santiago Consequently the arrest of King Orelie Antonie on his own territory is an odious violation of the rights of men. Let us add, that among bis papers have been found Ihe draft of a code of laws and plans of administrative organization confirming nil that has been said of Lis leaning to civilization.' A Shrewd Irishman. An Irish Priest was seen stand'ng at me corner oi one oi tne squares in Lon don, about the hour of dinner. One of his eountrymen, observing Ihe worthy father in perplexity, addressed him : "O I father O Luary, how is four riv- iiince t" "Mighlily put out. Pal," was tbe re ply. "Put I who'd put out your rivirince ?" "Oh ! you don't understand : this is just it I am invited to dine at one of the houses in this square, and I forgot the name, ana l never looked at tbe number, ond now it is 7 o'leock." "Oh.is that all." was lb reply. "Just now be aisy, your rivirince. I'll settle that for you." So saying, away flew the good-natured Irishman round the square, glancing at the kitchens, and when he discovered a fire Ihat denoted hospitality, he thundered at the door and inquired, "Is Father O'Leary here ?" As might be expected, again and again he was repulsed. At lengtn an angry loolman exclaimed "No 1 bother on Father O'Leary, he is not here, but he was to dine here to-day and the cook is in rage, and says the din ner will be spoilt." Paddy leaped from the door as if the steps had been on fire, rushed up Id the osionisnea priest "All right, your honor's rivirince ; you dine al 43, and a mighty good din ner you II get." "Oh, Pat, said the grateful pastor, the blessings ol a hungry man be upon you. "Long life and happiness to your riv irince ; 1 have got your malady, I only wish 1 bad your remedy.

Selfishness. Aiucnim waa ever born that did not love itself Utter than its companions. Let a mother set a dish of fruit before a cnna wncn there is a oroun nf ml,., -mi. dren standing near, and the first impulse of the child is lo appropriate the whole of , j: . . -s"- ... irur. lor itself, and to look upon those otner wistful eyes as eyes of enemies. Ihe mother begins lo try tbe child, and says : ' "My dear, divide the fruit, and give some to Mary snd William." The command is unwelcome to the child selfishness. It does not want lo divine ; but Hie mothers authority com pets it to ao it and it does it with mtnv lears. But when it is done, tbe mother tains to tne child, and says : "How noble it is lo be generous I" The next time the child has to divide fruit, il does it reluctantly ; it& selfishness has lo be crucified, and it suffers ; but does give away two out of six apples. And then it is praised. By this lime it begins lo gel an idea Ihat there is good in giving things awty, and gives the third. Then it look for praise, aod the praise instantly u gi.es wie lourtn. rraise follows giving, and giving is rewarded by praise, til! it comes to the last one, when it hesitates. Aed the next lime, perhaps ihe child is so much pleased wuh the re muneration of its higher feelings in the act of giving away, ihat it distributes all its fruit ar,d stands with nothing for itself. And Ihe parent says lo Ihe child, "This is honorable." Thut the child's better feel'ngs are in the ascendency, and its selfishness is compelled lo lake a subordinate position ! and the child grows np to be a true, no ble, manly boy. And he does not divide; o njuanucr in giving, tie empties every iliinc.and walks like a nrinee.fe "It is my nature lo give, and I prefer to An il There is no pain about his giving. The boy that gives freely would be ashamed to have it supposed that it cost him anv struggle to give. He has overcome, he has crucified Ihe element of selfishness wiihin himself; and, being generous has uecome a pleasure lo him. ibis illustrates the Tact thai although every struggle between a higher and a lower feeling begins with the suffering of lu" i yet, wnen tne lower is sub dued and brought uder (he control of the mger.

He is a man acd a soldier, if he doesn't wear an officer's coat." A better teslimonv vel ia the voice I hear to day from.the hospitals at Fortress Monroe, where he visited tbe sick and wounded, whether from loyal or Rebel States, (for he is President of the whole country.) aod spoke a kind and feeling word to each sufferer, so tbat they murmured from their beds of pain.

Leain lo say, "I do not know." and "I eannol afford it," with most so norious distinctness and emphasis. Men will then believe you, when you say, "I do know." aod "I can affoid it." Never be ashamed to pass for what you truly are, and who you are, and you are on solid ground. A man is already of con sequence in the world, when it is known that we can implicitly rely on him Ihat, when he says he knows a thing, it is so. Tua story is told of a New Zealand chief, that a young missionary landed al tbe island, to succeed a sacred teacher de ceased acme time before. At an inter view with the chief, ihe young miuister asked : "Did you know my departed bro'ber ?" "Ob, vest me deacon in his church." "Ah, then you knew him well; and was hs not a good, tender-hearted man ?" "Yes," replied the pious deacon wilh much gusto, "be very good, me eat a piece of bim." We are more inclined to bate one an other for points on which we differ, than to love one another for poicts on which we agree. 1 be reason perhaps is this : When we find others that agree with us, we seldom trouble ourselves to confirm tbe agreement ; but when we ehance on those that differ with us, we are zeal out both to convince and to oonyert them.

Two letters, one from Commissioner Judge Rost lo rebel Secretary Hunter, and the other from Captain Huso to Major Gorges, of Ibe robel Wsr Department, have reached Ihe au horities at Watbington, in stead of those at Richmond, and bare been published. They are curious and import ant. Judge Rost acknowledges tbat there it no ute tor bis s:aying in Europe. Tba conversation he beld with the Spanish Min ister at Madrid, of which he gives a full report, showed bim that Spain would not act without Eogland and France, and he was obliged to contest to bis Castillian questioner ibat tbote powers bad no faitb iu mo unnicaeracy. After be bad made a long talk about tbe ineffectiveness of Ihe blockade, he was Shrewdly asked why bia Government did not send bim out autnen tie news of events in the South. To this Rost made unsatisfactory replies, for he could not without admitting tbat it was next lo impossible for advices to reach bim.
